Norway will receive 40,000 extra doses of Pfizer / BioNTec’s coronavirus vaccine in March, following a new agreement between the EU Commission and the pharmaceutical company, newspaper VG reports.
“According to the EU Commission, these doses will be distributed between the countries according to the population in the usual way.
“For Norway, this means that we will receive over 40,000 extra vaccine doses in the last half of March. This is very good news,” State Secretary Saliba Andreas Korkunc (H) told the newspaper.
Denmark to receive additional 50,000 doses
Furthermore, Denmark will receive 50,000 more doses of the corona vaccines from Pfizer-BioNTech than initially expected in the next two weeks.
Minister of Health Magnus Heunicke confirmed the information on Twitter.
“The vaccination plan will therefore be updated, and now it is going in the right direction,” Heunicke wrote.
The increases are due to Pfizer-BioNTech’s additional delivery of four million doses to the EU.
